CHARLES ELIOT PERKINSThe 'Perkins' story: myth or reality?
It is the end of World War II and the Allies have control of the German IG Farben factories and all of it's technologies. Enter American Charles Eliot Perkins ("Perkins"). Perkins, so the story goes, was a researcher in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology. He and other scientists were put in charge of the Farben industries shortly after the cessation of hostilities but it was Perkins who was informed that the German General Staff adopted the plan of using sodium fluoride to make prisoners-of-war more docile and easier to manipulate and control. There is no surviving evidence to suggest the Germans did actually do this though it was well within their doctrine to carry out such a practice. It is also claimed that the ultimate intention of the Nazis was to fluoridate every country that they occupied and this story, which the Pushers are desperate to ridicule, has gained credibility in recent years for a number of reasons.
So what did Perkins do with the information given to him? Like most other scientists who fear for their job, their future or even their lives, he could have kept quiet. Not Perkins. Even as early as the 1940's to 1950's Perkins realised that fluoride could have an undesirable effect on a certain part of the brain - the hippocampus. Before he died, he urged those who would follow him not to let the anti-fluoride cause fail.
This was done in part in 1987 by someone known as Harley Rivers Dickinson (An Australian Liberal MP) who raised the issue of fluoridation and its sinister implications in an "Address in Reply to the Governor's speech in Parliament." The 'Address' forms part of a document compiled by Ian E Stephens and is appropriately entitled the 'Dickinson Statement' ("the Statement"). The main thrust of the Address was as follows;-
"At the end of the Second World War, the United States Government sent Charles Eliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology, to take charge of the vast Farben chemical plants in Germany. While there he was told of a scheme which had been worked out by them during the war and adopted by the German General Staff. This was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water. In this scheme sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place. Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual's power to resist domination by slowly poisoning and narcotisizing a certain area of the brain and will thus make him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him. Both the Germans and the Russians added sodium fluoride to the drinking water of prisoners-of-war to make them stupid and docile." (Reference: Victorian Hansard of 12th August 1987). Also see Dr Phyllis Mullenix.The Statement adds to this;-
"... Farben was a German chemical manufacturing concern that supplied Chlorine Gas used by Germany during the first World War, but the eventual creation of the huge Farben Cartel began in 1924 when American bankers began to arrange foreign loans in what Professor Carroll Quigley terms 'The Dawes Plan', "largely a J P Morgan production." (J P Morgan: one of the Wall Street élite - Author). In 1928, Henry Ford merged his German assets with Farben to be followed by the American Standard Oil Company who, in concert with Farben, developed the coal to oil hydrogenation process. In a letter to Roosevelt from Berlin in the early thirties, American Ambassador in Germany, William Dodd, said: "At the present, more than a hundred American corporations have subsidiaries here or co-operative understandings. The DuPonts have their allies in Germany that are aiding in the armament business. Their chief ally is the Farben company, a part of the Government which gives 200,000 Marks a year to one propaganda organization operating on American opinion. Standard Oil Company... sent $2 million here in December 1933 and has made $500,000 a year helping Germans make Ersatz gas (to convert coal to gasoline) for war purposes; but Standard Oil cannot take any of its earnings out of the country except in goods. The International Harvester president told me their business here rose 33% per year but they could not take anything out. Even our airplane people have secret arrangements with Krupps. General Motors and Ford do enormous business here through their subsidiaries and take no profits out."The Farben assets in America were controlled by a holding company, American IG Farben which listed on its Board of Directors, Edsel Ford, President of the Ford Motor Company, Chas E Mitchell, President of Rockefeller's National City Bank of New York, Walter Teagle, President of Standard Oil in New York, Paul Warburg, Chairman of the Federal Reserve and brother of Max Warburg, financier of Germany's war effort, and Herman Metz, a Director of the Bank of Manhattan, controlled by the Warburgs."
The Statement says of ALCOA;-
"In 1939, ALCOA, then probably the world's largest producer of sodium fluoride, transferred its technology to Germany (the Alted Agreement). The Dow Chemical Company transmitted it's experience and technology in that same period." Other Cartel companies mentioned in the Statement include the names of Kellogg and Proctor & Gambol (of Crest toothpaste fame).NB. None of the Americans that sat on the Board of AIG Farben were prosecuted after the war though three "non-Americans" were tried and convicted as war criminals.
Part 2 of the Statement looks at the roll of 'Foundations';-
"In Australia, the Dental Health & Research Foundation, which has such names as Colgate, Kellogg and other ex-Farben associates listed among it's 'governors and contributors', has been irreverently but accurately dubbed "the Fluoride Mafia". Closely allied with this Sydney University 'Foundation', in its printed promotional claims for fluorides and fluoridation, is 'Foundation 41'. Unfortunately, the data of the "thorough investigations" said to have been carried out by the Foundation into fluoride, its benefits and its hazards, have never been made available, despite numerous appeals. A recent ABC Science Show's examination of the scientific integrity of Foundation 41 may explain the elusive data. America is literally bursting at the seams with such Foundations, but amongst the earlier names were the Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Foundation and the Ford Foundation. It is necessary to mention these specifically because they were the first Foundations to make grants in the population (control) field and the Carnegie family merged with the Mellon family Institute to create the Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh in 1967."The Statement now returns to the ill-fêted Perkins. "In a letter abstracted from "Fluoridation and Lawlessness" (published by the Committee for Mental Health and National Security) to the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, Milwaukee, Wisconsin on October 2nd 1954, a Charles Eliot Perkins said;-
"We are told by fanatical ideologists who are advocating the fluoridation of the water supplies in this country that their purpose is to reduce the incidence of tooth decay in children, and it is the plausibility of this excuse, plus the gullibility of the public and the cupidity ( meaning covetousness - to desire or eagerly wish for ) of public officials that is responsible for the present spread of artificial water fluoridation in this country. However, and I want to make this very definite and very positive, the real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children's teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper and more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty... When the Nazis decided to go into Poland ... the German General Staff exchanged scientific and military ideas, plans and personnel and the scheme of mass medication was seized upon by the Russian Communists because it fitted ideally into their plan to communize the world... I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly twenty years research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine. Any person who drinks artificially fluoridated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person, mentally or physically."The Russian connection is further enhanced by the statement of Major George Racey Jordan who was in charge of the shipment of sodium fluoride to Russia from Great Falls, Montana, via Alaska. He queried the shipment of considerable amounts of sodium fluoride to Russia and was told "frankly" that it was put into the drinking water in the prisoner-of-war camps to take away their will to resist. As for the CIA, who ultimately come into this story, the Statement further adds that the 'Rockefeller Report' to the United States President on CIA activities said:
"The drug program was part of a much larger CIA program to study possible means of controlling human behaviour."NB. An earlier part of the Statement revealed that an advisor to the American Government on "hypnotism" or psychological behaviour control, Dr George Estabrooks, later became Chairman of the Department of Psychology at COLGATE UNIVERSITY.
The Statement also lists all the fluoridated tranquillisers that were on the market at the time (and no doubt some still are). Perhaps it is just coincidence, but the first fluoridation trials were about to begin in the USA in 1945, the year *Operation Paperclip commenced (*Operation Paperclip involved the movement of Nazi scientists to the USA). Until 1945, the US Public Health Service ("USPHS") had resisted fluoridation but that was all about to change, and rapidly so. The previous year, one Oscar Ewing was working for ALCOA as an attorney and on an annual salary of $750,000 - an awful lot of money in those days.
Was Ewing happy working for ALCOA and receiving such a substantial wage? If so, why did he decide to leave ALCOA to become Federal Security Administrator in the American Government at a lower income. Ewing is reported to have said that "he wanted to serve his country".
Consider also that the USPHS, just prior to and possibly during, was part of the US Treasury at the time Ewing was employed. And who was the US Treasurer just prior to Ewing's appointment? It was no other than Andrew Mellon, of ALCOA fame. It is more than a coincidence that in his position he could exert his influence over the reluctant USPHS and arrange for 'favourable' research into fluoride to compel the USPHS to reverse its decision. It has certainly been claimed on more than one occasion that past experiments into fluoridation were not well designed - clearly indicating that such research was biased.
The scientists controlling the research programmes, instead of being unbiased, could be carefully selected to produce such favourable results and so the fluoride bandwagon began to roll. Therefore, appointments to influential positions under Ewing's control became a reality. So why did the Government appoint him if he was going to use his position to further the cause of fluoridation? Perhaps President Roosevelt ('Mr Wall Street' and I G Farben investor), also had an interest in fluoride's 'alternative use'.
